The Last Of The Pratt. - The remaining portion of the tug Peter P. Pratt has been raised out of the water, the engine taken out in pretty fair order, the shaft and wheel both secured and landed on the dock, and now the work of reducing the hull to firewood progress so rapidly that tomorrow not a trace will be left.

The explosion was one of the worst that ever happened here as far as destroying the hull was concerned. From amidship forward nothing was left but the keelson, everything else having disappeared.
